Barstow Logo Design

Nearly every new Barstow company realizes that they need a logo, but few entrepreneurs fully recognize the pivotal role their organization logo can make in their becoming successful, or why one logo design works better than another. A logo has an immediate and long-term effect on the financial success of a company, select the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Barstow businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not demand deliberation, they can be grasped in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will be legible and just as emotive at any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are unique, and they are suitable for the company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be enduring and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

Retro logo style of a bicycle developed for a Barstow coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and bistro were opening in an older part of the town and wanted to cast a retro atmosphere without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished each of the jobs by developing a trademark concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a classic business image.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the field of medicine which deals with the laboratory assessment of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is the sole instance I recollect where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Usually I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, but it does it in a fashion that incorporates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more appealing, more interest grabbing and more memorable.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog created for a family enjoyable center in Barstow.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the types of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental experts, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really resonate an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this logo design project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a much more dynamic high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design including a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Barstow travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead project emotional experiences by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I attempted to do something the same to this logo by employing the positive space in the design to voice one thing and then at the same time using the negative space to expand upon what was communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Barstow logo but also to reveal the depth to her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Barstow logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design jobs that I take on I really savor and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A however the client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his contempt for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased point of views on the value of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they loved the concept and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to incorporate every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their logo design comprehend how essential a logo design is for their organization so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo design job has it’s share of difficulties, however the biggest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender parcel of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most crucial part of a printed book due to the fact that it is usually the initial thing a person sees in the book shop.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go yet it seems like that in many cases 1 of the aspects people tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young startup commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a spirit of airline flight and it was surely a success.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Barstow, design include an arc with lines converging via it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects due to the fact that it appears that almost every dentist features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care profession.

I actually love doing dentist business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and subsequently I created a design that does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be far too literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate precisely how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that explains itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a hair layout workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design that conveyed a sense of simplicity and class for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious route of designing merely a stylized orchid but instead delivered a company logo which implied a flower in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is oftentimes the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the attention on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their customers.

The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection between the software and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it represented something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a logo is equally as important as how it brands the company it represents.

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly understood the market was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to market their used goods to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Barstow logo dsign utilizing an image that garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors.
